Book Review | Sabrina The Teenage Witch by Kelly Thompson

Hi everyone! Happy Easter! I hope everyone has a lovely holiday during this otherwise very difficult time. Today I know is meant to be spent with family, but it’s best that we all stay home and just reach out by a phone call. Trust me, when this is all over I am so looking forward to visiting my grandparents and bbq’ing it up.

I know my mom and dad are struggling a little bit with Easter having to be at home and no Easter dinners, but this year I decided to hold an Easter egg hunt at home for my brother and mom and dad. My brother is 18, so we haven’t had an egg hunt at my house for a long time.. but I thought we needed a little bit of fun this year for Easter. I made them nice baskets, and they will be going around the house looking for their eggs.

How are you guys spending your Easter at home? Any dinner plans? Any fun stay at home activities you have planned? Let me know! Now, on to the book review!

Sabrina the Teenage Witch

Sabrina the Teenage Witch

Kelly Thompson, Veronica Fish (Illustrator)

Pages: 144

Audience: YA

Genre(s): Graphic Novel, Fantasy, Paranormal, Witches

Publication Date: November 20, 2019

Sabrina is a teen witch who’s struggling with balancing the double life of high school and her burgeoning powers. Newly relocated to Greendale with her aunts Hilda and Zelda (also witches), Sabrina is trying to make the best of being the new girl in town which so far includes two intriguing love interests, an instant rivalry, a couple of misfits that could turn into BFFs, and trying to save the high school (and maybe the world) from crazy supernatural events. NBD!

  • Sabrina’s Personality – I loved Sabrina’s personality throughout the story. She had a ton of sass and was very sarcastic, just like me which I enjoyed. She was very funny and I loved that she wasn’t afraid of using and showing off her magic! Every witch-y themed book I read, the witches are always scared to use their magic, which is what makes the book great! We saw a lot of magic in this story, and I hope with future stories we continue on with that.
  • Artwork – I really loved the artwork in this one, I also how the included all the different covers at the end that multiple artists has sent in. Just really refreshing artwork.
  • Lots of Action – There were a lot of monsters, magic action. I love seeing that in a book, less drama and more action!
  • Funny – I laughed throughout most of this book to be totally honest. Not laugh at the book obviously, but at Sabrina’s humor and SALEM! Ugh, I loved it.
  • Length – I thought their definitely could have been more, but the cliff hanger was a good starting place for the next book.
  • Love Triangle – I don’t like love triangles in general anyways, so this one definitely did not do it for me. We all know I love Sabrina and Harvey together, so that love triangle was NOT needed!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

Absolutely! I thought this was such a refreshing graphic novel. I loved the artwork, the action, the sass. I can’t wait for the second volume/collection to come out!

Arc Review | Black Canary: Ignite by Meg Cabot

Hello everyone! Today is an Arc review post!, which I am very proud of since I am starting to actually try and read some Arc’s. I love comics, I love graphic novels, but guys this just wasn’t it for me. Let’s get into the post and see why.


Black Canary: Ignite

Title: Black Canary: Ignite

Author: Meg Cabot, Cara McGee (Illustrator)

Pages: 144

Format: paperback

Genre(s): Middle Grade, Graphic Novel, Superhero Comic

Publication Date: October 29, 2019

*Thank you to DC Comics for sending me a copy of Black Canary: Ignite in exchange for an honest review*

Meg Cabot’s first graphic novel!

Thirteen-year-old Dinah Lance knows exactly what she wants, who she is, and where she’s going. First, she’ll win the battle of the bands with her two best friends, then she’ll join the Gotham City Junior Police Academy so she can solve crimes just like her dad. Who knows, her rock star group of friends may even save the world, but first they’ll need to agree on a band name.

When a mysterious figure keeps getting in the way of Dinah’s goals and threatens her friends and family, she’ll learn more about herself, her mother’s secret past, and navigating the various power chords of life.

  • Black Canary story – This is a different superhero I have honestly never even heard of, and come to find out, the Black Canary has been around for a long time. I was glad I got to meet this villain for the first time in junior high school form I guess.
  • Rare Superpower – The superpower Black Canary has, which is like this screech call thing that breaks glass and a whole bunch of other stuff, is pretty cool and also not really popular in books/movies dealing with superheros, so I liked that a lot.
  • The artwork
  • Dinah was so whiny– One of my biggest problems with this book was the fact that Dinah was just so… annoying. It got to the point where I just couldn’t stand her in the end. She was way over the top emotional, complained about having a freaking superpower!, and was too much for me. I get it, it’s supposed to go for a middle grade audience, but should we really be teaching kids it’s okay to basically complain about everything and anything? No.
  • Story was boring – There was nothing really going on in this story. We get the smallest littlest bit of the ‘Black Canary’ origin story, and then we just know how to fight crime now and defeat a villain and it’s just all fun and games with the very predictable ‘I can’t be with my friends so now my friends are mad at me’ stunt.
  • The ‘joker’– The joker is mentioned like 3 times in this book, and so is Bruce Wayne’s manor, and that’s really the only connection to Gotham City that there is. I thought the lines about the Joker were cheesy and was just used to give the book a little bit more umph.
  • Middle Grade book – I think this was kind of my fault, I honestly thought this book was going to be a YA Comic… BUT I was wrong lmao. I think it makes more sense now when I realized at the end she’s only in middle school, but it definitely threw me off because literally the whole time I was like ‘what the hell, this girl is really a teenager in high school?? She’s acting like a baby!”…. Makes sense now guys.

⭐⭐/5

I feel like if you are the intended audience (Middle Grade), then possibly you might enjoy this. Other than that? I don’t really think so.

Book Review: Teen Titans: Raven by Kami Garcia

Hi everyone! I finally got around to reading this graphic novel! I have been hearing about it for a very long time and I am so glad I got to buy this for myself. My library doesn’t really do well in keeping up with their Graphic Novel section and buying newer releases for Graphic Novels, so I figured I would just pick this one up myself and I actually really enjoyed it! Let’s get onto the review!


Teen Titans: Raven

Title: Teen Titans: Raven

Author: Kami Garcia, Gabriel Picolo (Illustrator)

Pages: 192

Format: paperback

Genre: YA Graphic Novel, Comics, Superheroes

Publication Date: July 2, 2019

When a tragic accident takes the life of 17-year-old Raven Roth’s foster mom—and Raven’s memory—she moves to New Orleans to recover and finish her senior year of high school.

Starting over isn’t easy. Raven remembers everyday stuff like how to solve math equations and make pasta, but she can’t remember her favorite song or who she was before the accident. And when impossible things start happening, Raven begins to think it might even be better not to know who she was before.

But as she grows closer to her new friends, her foster sister, Max, and Tommy Torres, a guy who accepts her for who she is now, Raven has to decide if she’s ready to face what’s buried in the past… and the darkness building inside her.

  • Raven – As a Marvel fan, I don’t really pay attention to DC that much, but I do LOVE the Teen Titans, and I especially love Raven. Once I saw this book was going to be a graphic novel all about Raven, I was excited. I thought Kami captured Raven beautifully and really helped me appreciate her more.
  • New Orleans setting – I don’t read many books that are set in New Orleans, so to read this book and see that, ugh! I was in love. They incorporated so much of New Orleans culture and it was just a nice refresh to what I have been reading recently.
  • Max – I liked Max! She had a little bit of mystery too her that I really enjoyed.
  • Artwork – I thought the artwork was beautiful. It wasn’t the typical art you see in superhero comics, and that made me pretty happy.
  • The writing – The writing was so good I want to mark on my calendars that Teen Titans: Beast Boy is going to be coming out next summer!
  • Rushed – The books felt a little rushed, like explaining of he super powers, the ending was rushed. It definitely could have been a little bit longer of a book.
  • The ending – The ending was nothing spectacular in my eyes. Was kind of hoping for a little bit more of a confrontation between her and Tommy buttttt oh well!

🕸️🕸️🕸️🕸️/5

I’m giving Teen Titans: Raven a 4 out of 5 spiderwebs
